Queen - On Track: Every Album, Every Song

Wild, Andrew

Everyone knows Queen and their most famous songs. 'Crazy Little Thing Called Love', 'Another One Bites the Dust', 'Under Pressure' and 'Bohemian Rhapsody' were huge hits wherever anyone could hear a radio. However, many contemporary reviews were savage, and yet their songs-from the radio-friendly hit singles to the early prog rock epics, from the cod-heavy bombast to the jazz pastiches, from the introspective ballads to the thumping anthems-continue to be heard all around the world.

This book examines Queen's music, album by album, track by track, in detail. Where possible, recourse to the original multi-track master tapes has provided extra insight. Those familiar hits are revisited, but the classic album cuts - like 'Liar', 'March of the Black Queen', 'Death on Two Legs', and 'Dragon Attack', are given equal precedence. The book also examines the changes that these same four musicians went through - from heavy and pomp rock to pop as the chart hits began to flow - with a keen and unbiased eye. Whether as a fan your preference is for the albums A Night at the Opera, Jazz or Innuendo this detailed and definitive guide will tell you all you need to know. Queen had strength in depth. These are the songs on which a legend was built.
